    Post New BlackBerry GMail App v1.5.1

    Advertisement



    I just updated to the new version of GMail on my BlackBerry. Version 1.5.1

    Link: http://www.gmail.com/app

    Enjoy!

    <Edit>
    So I've put the application through a couple of tests to see what is different. You can now save an email as a draft. But only 1 email can be drafted to your mobile device at a time. There is more settings you can change in GMail optins for a secured connection, have it delete, archive, etc with one touch of a button. There is a tag to the bottom of your emails saying "Sent form Gmail for mobile" And you can tell it to notify me when you have an new email. Also you can sign out from the menu and I don't remember that being there on version 1.1.

    The big thing for me is Gmail hasn't crashed when I was writing a long email. I so hope that problem is fixed!

    Make sure that you delete the earlier Mail by Google application if you have previously installed it -- the application name has changed, and the new application will NOT replace the older one during the upgrade. Also, the advertising signature can be disabled.

    Sorry to nitpick... but, isn't this obsolete with the ability to just create a folder for GMail and have that mail directed to your BIS server???

    Do you just like having a GMail icon, instead of a folder?

    I like using the GMail app because I can choose when to go in and check my messages. You also get the ability to mark messages as spam, star, and archive messages from the app. You can also use the search feature. Using the app just give you more options and control over your box.

    You can also view all messages as opposed to just what's on your device.

    Correct, it depends on what features you'll use, but it's hardly obsolete. To me, and how I use GMail, using gmail with a BIS account it more of a step backwards as far as functionality.

    I use the BIS Gmail for quick email responses and the GMAIL app to search older emails.

    For all who really use this application, it's a big step forward for BB users since now you can have the app notify you if you get a new email. Just look under your profiles, and just check the box in settings and you're good to go.

    Great upgrade for BB users!

    Another benefit for the Gmail app as opposed to BIS is for Gspace (Firefox plug-in) users. You can access your Gspace Database folder directly from the BlackBerry -- this gives users the capability to forward files stored on Gspace from the device.

    Thanks, Nice new features, plus it now loads an email immediately once you click on it, before you had to also click open. I use this app because I get to have access to all my contacts and have access to my other folders.

    GMAIL 1.5.1 Out now for Blackberry

    I'm not entirely sure this was posted, but i was just notified by a friend to download the new gmail app for blackberry. As you may be aware of Gmail 1.5 did come out some time ago, but it was not compatible with Blackberrys.

    I have started using the application, but i find some shortcomings:
    -Cannot edit contacts
    -Notification of new emails leaves the led flashing long after you open the email
    -Notification only vibrates, makes a sound, or flashes the led. I have yet to see a little envelope or anything of that sort when i receive new emails.
    -Still no labeling

    Hopefully they will fix this.

    When I downloaded 1.5, it installed over the old app. I didn't need to delete the old app. the new version isn't loading for me. It just sits there forever and never loads. I did a batt pull, still nothing. How do I get old version back or fix this??
